To take your wedding look to the next level, you need to find the right jewelry to complement you and your dress perfectly. Now, this is not going to be costume jewelry, we are talking heirloom type purchases here. But you may or may not know that there is a whole set of rules that governs the proper utilization of jewelry depending on what kind of dress and hair style you are going to have. So, what we are saying in essence, is that you need to have a knowledgeable consultant at a jewelry store who will be able to help you based on what you are going to be wearing or what complements you the most for your big day. At the same time, this is the kind of jewelry that you will want to wear again so you need to make sure that your purchase is something that will continue to be usable for years after your wedding. The bottom line is this, you need someone who can give you quality advice in this arena. So, we are here to help you as you search the Tampa area for quality jewelry stores. We suggest that you take this guide with you wherever you go, it will serve you well.

So, your first step is to come up with a list of jewelry stores that are worth visiting. Ask your family, friends and coworkers if they have ever had any dealings with a jewelry store. If they have, find out if their experience was more than satisfactory. Make note of any stores that you hear about in this way. Then, you can ask your wedding vendors if they know of any reputable jewelry stores that they recommend. And a third source is the world wide web. Do a Google search for “Jewelry stores in the Tampa area.” We realize that this means hundreds of results and we do not recommend that you try and go through every single store because that would take forever. But we do suggest that you set a limit for yourself, say 50 stores, and check out each website looking for what looks like quality providers. After you have finished with these three sources, you should have a number of candidates to check out.

Start with the first name on your list and start making appointments at each jewelry store. When you meet with each jewelry store consultant, you need to make sure that you have the following questions at the ready. Also, make sure that they listen to what you have to say. Find out how long they have been in business. You want to make sure they have longevity and that they will still be around in 5 years if your jewelry needs fixing. Ascertain if the staff is knowledgeable as you interview each candidate.

Show them your dress and ask for suggestions as to the type of jewelry that would look best. Does the store have a wide selection? Do they offer warranties and what is their return policy? Considering what you will be wearing, find out how much in the way of jewelry they recommend you wear. This is very important in the scope of your wedding. After all of your visits, you should be able to narrow down your choice to the one that gives you confidence and to the one whose vision for your wedding meshes with your vision.
